Should news networks have to disclose how much advertising revenue they bring in from each political candidate?

Question by For Your Information: Should news networks have to disclose how much advertising revenue they bring in from each political candidate?
It would seem there is definitely an incentive for many major news networks to play soft ball with the president because he will have a billion dollars in the bank to advertise with next year.

Media outlets make money selling advertisements.

What do you think?
@fush ya…….”Shouldn’t people be smart enough to see it themselves?”

I don’t know about “should”, I just know what people currently are. Uninformed and getting manipulated on a daily basis is the tip of the iceberg. The news media is only perpetuating the problem.

How much does it cost to set up a 24 hour news channel?

Question by Brian B: How much does it cost to set up a 24 hour news channel?
I’m not particularly satisfied with the existing mainstream 24 hour news channels in Britain (BBC News 24 & Sky). Supposing I wanted to start one up. What’s the minimum amount of money I would need to raise? Let’s assume I wanted it to be a serious and credible news outlet, albeit a small one, that carried advertising.

Best answer:

Answer by Wise Old Man
I would think at a minimum you would need land for your studios, a building large enough for several studios, offices, and engineering staff and equipment; you would need I would think a minimum of 20 to 25 news reporters since you are 24 hours and they all need some days off, you would need engineers to run the equipment, camera operators. I’m not sure on the cost of equipment but one major supplier of broadcast equipment in the US is the Harris Corp

plus you would need the cost of setting up the equipment, studio lighting, and your studio sets, background curtains, etc. It would not be cheap! Good luck to you!

Do you ever notice how much advertising is in these internet web pages that show news articles?

Question by B: Do you ever notice how much advertising is in these internet web pages that show news articles?
To show my point just take any one of those web pages, then copy and paste it into yahoo mail before you decide to send it to someone but before you hit “send” manually delete all the unneccecary bannars, photos, links, ect. You will then be able to instanty see what it is about all that over marketing hype I am talking about and maybe get why too many ads can annoy me at times.

How much is the subscription frees for access to Usenet?

Question by DuRaCell: How much is the subscription frees for access to Usenet?
Can anyone know how much? 10 points provided if you know the answer
Thank youu!

Best answer:

Answer by Joan
I hope i get your question right.
Usenet in general is free. So is subscribing to any kind of newsgroups.
What you probably meant is the fee the provider is asking for to access those groups.
There are many different providers, you can have access for as low as $ 2.95 a month. If you want to download a lot of big files you’re probably looking towards 20$ a month for an unlimited access. Which means no limitations in speed, volume etc.
It pretty much depends on what you want to do.
If you only want to access the discussion groups and load text files you should look if your internet provider gives you access to those.
But be aware these groups are often censored by the provider.
If you’re looking for some uncensored group providers here’s a list to compare them: http://uncensorednewsgroupsreview.com/

Why do local television networks spend so much time each day advertising their news shows.?

Question by hazzard: Why do local television networks spend so much time each day advertising their news shows.?
They could use that time to report more news throughout the day. I think it is because they are more concerned about commercial revenue than keeping the pubic as informed as possible. What do you think.

Best answer:

Answer by ladi_d81
A lot of them will do that to create a buzz and hopefully attract some people to watch their show. Sometimes, they even have a small ‘news break’ where they will only give you the main headline of the story, but not anything else about it so you have to come back and watch if you want to know what it is about (such as what normal household chemical could be compromising your health? Find out with news at 10).
Just like everything else in the world it has become extremely commercialized.

Is this why there is so much mention of Hitler and Nazis on this board?

Question by Opie Taylor: Is this why there is so much mention of Hitler and Nazis on this board?
Godwin’s Law

The most famous of all the internet laws, formed by Mike Godwin in 1990. As originally stated, it said: “As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.” It has now been expanded to include all web discussions.

It is closely related to the logical fallacy “reductio ad Hitlerum”, which says “Hitler (or the Nazis) liked X, so X is bad”, frequently used to denigrate vegetarians and atheists.

Common Godwin’s Law appearances include describing women’s rights campaigners as “feminazis”, comparing the former US President George W Bush to Hitler, or saying Barack Obama’s proposed healthcare reforms are the new Holocaust.

In its broader sense it can be used to describe any situation where a poster loses all sense of proportion, for example describing New Labour as “Zanu-Labour” after Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwean political party Zanu-PF.

As well as the descriptive form, it can be used prescriptively: so if any poster does mention the Nazis in a discussion thread, Godwin’s Law can be invoked, they instantly lose the argument and the thread can be ended.

If this is done deliberately to end the argument, however, it does not apply. This codicil is known as “Quirk’s Exception”.

How much do you know about a payserver?

How much do you know about a payserver?

For anyone who is interested in such things, a payserver seems to represent the best possible thing. Now, how much do you know about Usenet and the opportunities this network has to offer? Relax, as you are about to find out everything there is to know on the subject.

Being a large network that comprises of different servers, Usenet has been known to connect people and information found throughout the entire world. It only takes one payserver for a simple message to be spread at a global level, even though that information will remain stored at a local level. Usenet servers face a constant exchange of information, coming and going to various points on the map. Everyone knows that Usenet actually comprises of newsgroups, sections that include specific content. There are newsgroups that contain only music files and also, newsgroups that contain more general information. Online, you have the opportunity to discover valuable details on Usenet and what it can do for you and other Internet users.

The first step that you need to take is to create a Usenet account, this decision allowing you to browse as many newsgroepen (newsgroups) as you desire. Once you find something that you like and want to download from the newsserver, then you can use a specific program and transfer that information onto your computer. The program is known as a newsreader, being perfect for reading text messages. One of the most important examples that could be given when it comes to newsreader programs is Microsoft Outlook Express but you have other recommendations as well – Grabit and Astraweb for example. These applications can be downloaded from the Internet and used successfully on the newsserver.

If you are new at the whole newgroep thing, then perhaps it might not be such a bad idea if you found out some information first. The Internet represents the best place to inform yourself on the subject, with specialized resources presenting the most essential factors to consider when downloading from the newsserver. From all the factors mentioned, you will soon understand that the retention of the payserver is indeed the most important. If you are a constant visitor of the any newsgroup present on the server, then you should know that retention refers to how long the information is going to be kept on that server. The higher the retention, the higher the quality of the payserver in general.

Don’t worry about these newsgroups and the payserver not being secure, as all the information is SSL encrypted. Your privacy will be respected to the fullest, guaranteeing exactly the safety you were looking for while browsing the Internet, whether you log on from home or from a hot spot in the park.

Looking for the latest films, music, games or software? Then Usenet is the deal for you! newsgroups, payserver, newsgroup, grabit, astraweb.
